How to prepare your child for the PT3 BM Lisan and English Oral Tests

Teachers will group students in teams for their BM Speaking Test and give them time to practice in class on given topics.

If you wish to let your child practice more, you can get workbooks that come with audio or apps to let them do their practical practice at home.

Since the BM Speaking test is a team test, it would be a good idea to let them practice in a group with their friends. They can meet in school or at a friend's home to practice. The workbooks will give them more ideas on topics or the types of questions that may be asked.

Encourage your child to speak aloud clearly with confidence. For the BM Speaking test, he or she should know a few points in mind so that if a team member has already mentioned the point, he will still be able to contribute to the discussion.

Besides workbooks, you can search YouTube for the BM Lisan or English Oral Samples for ideas. Here's one.



Since the Speaking test is in April and the Listening test is in August, you can practice just the speaking part first and keep the workbooks till August for the Listening practice.


All the best to all PT3 2018 candidates.
